Caitlyn and Andrew met when she was a lifeguard and Andrew was a diving coach in 2009. “We dated on and off. He went to school in Pennsylvania and I went to school in North Carolina. We began dating seriously in 2015 when Andrew was stationed at Fort Bragg.”
Andrew proposed on 4th of July weekend in 2017, “in front of my whole family at my aunt’s river house. There were even fireworks set off right after the proposal over the water. It was perfect.”
120 guests were in attendance for their barn wedding At Dulaney’s Overlook, including four bridesmaids, four groomsmen, and one flower girl.
“We had a traditional Presbyterian ceremony. It was important to us for the ceremony to be a highlighted part of the day. Our backdrop was a custom piece built by my father.”
The couple chose a color palette of gray, crimson, and green for their reception decor. “I wanted a whimsically elegant look.”
Caitlyn is an editor and Andrew is an army officer. They currently reside in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
